Two-dimensional mapping of young stars in the inner 180pc of NGC 1068: Correlation with molecular gas ring and stellar kinematics

Storchi-Bergmann, Thaisa; Riffel, Rogemar A; Riffel, Rogerio; Diniz, Marlon R; Vale, Tiberio Borges; McGregor, Peter


We report the first two-dimensional mapping of the stellar population and non-stellar continua within the inner 180pc (radius) of NGC1068 at a spatial resolution of 8pc, using integral field spectroscopy in the near-infrared. We have applied the technique of spectral synthesis to data obtained with the instrument NIFS and the adaptive optics module ALTAIR at the Gemini North Telescope. Two episodes of recent star formation are found to dominate the stellar population contribution: the first...[Show more]
